Poster promoting National Aboriginal Health Week 1983 and more particularly the Koori Kollij Health Worker Education program, an initiative of the Victorian Aboriginal Health Service (VAHS). The text discusses the need to improve the health of Indigenous people across Australia. It describes the holistic and inclusive nature of health in Indigenous communities stating: 'Health does not just mean the physical well-being of an individual, but refers to the social, emotional and cultural well-being of the whole community.' Established in 1982, Koori Kollij aimed to establish new and enduring standards of Indigenous health in Australia by training individuals to provide culturally appropriate and effective healthcare for Indigenous people.
